Transparent cards

I made these cards using trancparencies and rub-ons. I have all of these rub-ons from last year's Stampin' Up sale-a-bration (and am now just using them!) I started with white cardstock for the base and the same size for the transparency overlay. I trimmed the bottom edge with scallop scissor and some paper piercing. After putting on the rub-on, I added a little glitter glue to sparkle it up.

Another Felt Bag

Here is another version of the Valentine felt bag. This time, I made it more generic. I used the set Tart and Tangy (Stampin' Up) and added some orange and blue ribbon. This would look cute with some cards from the same set inside the bag.

Get Well

This is another project from the Wild Card cartridge from Cricut. A colleague of mine had to have her tonsils out. I know a bandaid isn't really appropriate for this kind of surgery, but I thought this card was cute. Since I needed to use a long envelope, I included a bookmark as well (knowing that she likes to read and will be home for three weeks).

Here was another little treat we made last week at my class. This frosted bag is filled with strawberry malted milk balls! Yum! The top of the bag is decorated with brown paper folded over the top (punched with the Fiskar border punch called treading water). Next is a pink strip of paper. The scallop circle with the heart in the middle is from the set Love You Much from Stampin' Up - this set is still available and can be purchased until January 31. A little bit of pink glitter glue finished up this project. TFL!

Valentine Boxes

These cute little boxes are so easy and so much fun to put togehter. I found the directions for these cute boxes on Splitcoast stampers. Click here. The directions are super easy and you won't need any tape or adhesive to put them together (no cutting either). At my class last weekend, I had sheets of different Valentine paper for everyone to choose from. After making the boxes, we filled them with shredded paper and chocolate (this box is filled with chocolate peanut butter lips!) You can use any size square paper. These boxes are made with 8x8 paper.

Bling! Bling! Hello!

These cute cards are cut from the new Cricut cartridge called Wild Card. This cartridge has some darling designs! The black phone has thin silver wire attached to look like the cord and a little black and white polka dot bow. The old fashion dialing is covered with lavendar sticker gems. The gray phone with the pink bow has crystal sticker gems. I made a few other cards using this cartridge. Keep watching this week.

Wild About You

I saw this zebra and thought he was darling! The only thing was that it is a Quickutz die that was made exclusively for Archivers (and we don't have an Archiver's around here!). Luckily I found it on ebay! When I received it earlier this week and took a close look at it, I thought "Oh no! It's in a million different pieces!" Well, it does take a while to put together, but here it is. When I cut the zebra, I cut both the black and white paper at the same time and then I used the negative pieces to make another zebra. TFL!

Valentine Candy Card

Here is another project we are going to make at the Valentine class. The alligator is from the set Animal Valentines (retired Stampin' Up). The paper is from the Dollar spot at Target. Red ribbon is from Stampin' Up, pink ribbon is from Michael's.

Valentine Class

Well, it has been a long four weeks, but my hand is recovering from surgery and I am ready to start crafting again. The most painful part was sitting here looking at all my fun "stuff" and not being able to use it. So here is my first project for my Valentine class on Saturday. I found these felt bags on clearance at the Target dollar spot. I cut off the green ribbon and glued on pink. I added a heart tag card and some extra ribbon for decoration. What do you think? Wouldn't it make a cute Valentine gift bag? Hope they like it at the class. Keep checking back, I'll show more projects later.
